Applications are open to anyone working on projects related to MRH’s mission, which includes projects focused on herbalism and herbal education, protection of native and medicinal plants, environmental stewardship, or organic and sustainable agriculture.
“As a mission-driven company, giving back to the communities that embrace and support us is incredibly important,” said project creator and MRH Customer Experience Director Irene Wolansky. “Although we regularly donate to nonprofit organizations and sponsor conservation and herbal events, we wanted to do more on a grassroots level. It only takes a small seed to grow into a massive old-growth tree, and in the same vein, there are awe-inspiring projects happening all around the US which just need a little assistance to help them grow into fruition.”
The Mountain Rose Herbs Giving Project was created with home herbalists, small businesses, and nonprofit organizations in mind. To be considered, projects must take place within the U.S. and have clearly defined goals with detailed action plans. Projects should be able to show tangible results and applicants will be required to submit a written project update and another 3-minute video within one year of receiving funds.
